know you're aware that six of the 10 fastest-growing economies in the world are located in sub-saharan africa, and it is my hope to the extent possible that the state department will prioritize trade with the african nation. you should know that we have a bipartisan bicameral effort working in conjunction with chairman smith to quickly put forward a renewal of the africa growth and opportunity act. so i have four questions i would like to ask you. i wanted to know what steps are you taking to focus on africa's extraordinary growth potential? what are your thoughts about the u.s. appointing a special envoy to the drc? does the request for peacekeeping operations accurately reflect the growing needs on the continent? and can you comment on the significance of the 6% cut to usaid hiv/aids funding? >> thank you very much, congresswoman. let me emphasize first of all that we were really pleased that pepfar was able to be held whole. i think that's vital. i have personally visited, i was in durbin, north of durbin, in the mountains watching of the program is being effectively adminis

the economy grow and create jobs, protect the middle class, and protect seen yours. the president is engaged in a process with lawmakers where he's trying to find commonground to see if commonground exists with republicans around the basic principle to reduce the budget in a balanced way, and he's put forward a plan that would do that eliminating the sequester in the process. when it comes to delays, though, congress has to act in order to avert delays. >> prioritizing spending under the faa, but you want the sequester to inflict maximum -- >> since we did everything we could to avert the sequester, and, unfortunately, the republicans decided as a political matter it was a home run for them to inflick this upon the american people, i think that suggestion just doesn't hold water. secondly, the faa did take action, all the action it could under the law to produce savings and avoid furloughs up until this point where because of the nature of their budget and the personnel heavy nature of their operation furloughs are the only option available to the faa at this time. again, if congress wants t

. indeed, our affordable universal service is crucial to the american economy and to american businesses that generate 95% of all mail. my written testimony offers a comprehensive set of options to restore the postal service to solvency. this morning i will cover, this afternoon i will cover the issues you specifically asked me to address in your invitation. on cost savings, the nalc and the other postal unions have contributed billions in savings through collective bargaining. that process concluded for just 12 weeks ago. the new nalc contract emerged from interest arbitration that focused on the financial condition of the postal service that led to award if you want to provide postal service with huge savings in the years to come. as we did during the great recession when we worked tirelessly with management to adjust routes to respond to mail voe' done, more must be done and congresseeds to do its part as well. i will highlight two cost reforms from the written testimony. first congress should repeal or dramatically reduce the retiree health prefunding mandate that caused over 80% of
dangers within our economy. one would be interest rates rising. i asked this to people i consider to be smart, big bankers, nature capital centers of the world. can they control just raising keep interest rates below? is there a point at which the central cannot keep pace. interest rate to 7% are when i was a kid, 19% were 21% would be catastrophic with this burden of debt. he seems to work right now, but there is a certain allusion of wealth in the stock market and evolution of the peace we can manage our debt. those are my concerns and because of that, we have to do long-range things. i propose several things since i've come. i propose fixing a security problem. to me it's an actuarial problem. you raise the age gradually 27862 thirds of the social security deficit. fix the remaining by testing the benefits. the president has occasionally sad he's for entitlement reform, but is not shown much leadership on this premise seems to benchmark per se, but any with him at least a 47 republican senators, we sat around a table that he and the vice president a year and half ago and i told
something horrible to happen, or you need a total collapse of the economy. i don't see either. >> well, we're actually talking about two different events. relative to a correction this year, i think that we're looking at something similar to 2011. 10 to 20% off in the second or third quarter, kind of a reaction to this building uncertainty, this volatility we have seen since february. in terms of the bigger crash call that i've been making for more than a year now, as the s&p continues to top out very similar as it did in 2000 to 2007, i think you're right. i think that we are looking at some kind of external shock situation. >> no, no, i'm not -- i'm saying that's what you need to make your forecast right. i'm not predicting that. i don't see the end of the world scenario. i don't buy it. >> and i hope that bernanke -- >> gold signal. i just don't buy it. and so much liquidity -- seema, are you hearing this end of the world -- all right. let's take abigail. 10 to 20% correction. are you hearing that? >> if the fed pulls back on monetary support sooner than expected, i think there are trad

in setting up obamacare. why didn't they, john? it is their law. >> it is 1/6 of the economy and it has a lot of moving parts and frankly i think we reached the point where bureaucratic government, 20th century style can handle something this complex without proper price signals and proper market signals. the health care industry is a mess. half of it is paid are by the government. they set prices for the other half which is privately managed. i don't think it works, health savings accounts and health plans and extending people a lifeline if they get really seriously sick the we need to send market signals. right now this thing is a train wreck and there is nothing --. bill: that is your solution. what's theirs? >> their solution is we should trust them to make it work. and maybe after a few years it will work but right now everybody is confused. and of course the problem with these democrats foresee is the 2014 midterm elections are coming and if obamacare isn't perceived as working, people are going to say, i'm upset. i'm mad. remember, president obama promised americans, if you like your h
dollar deficits, to a fledgeling economy and declining military -industrial base. we can now add to that the devastating effects of sequestration to our servicemen and women. sequestration is the wrong approach to bring in spending, particularly as our nation's military readiness will foolishly suffer. however, we are under sequestration. and i hope you can clarify for me some of its impacts. we have recently heard that the army has canceled seven combat center training rotations, the navy has canceled ship deployments. air force has stood 12 combat-coded squad rons, not to mention potential civilian furloughs for up to 14 days all due to sequestration and i hope you can translate that into the real world for us, including what that means in terms of readiness and force posture. we'll continue to wrestle with these issues with you. i'm very happy and pleased to see during the fiscal 2013 c.r. that we were able to include the full year defense and veterans -- milcon and veterans bills, giving you some much needed flexibility in funding for d.o.d. past three years we worked across

and the economy, then it reverted back to talking about the economy and jobs, the president has been on the record quite a bit opposing legalization and the decriminalization of our drug laws. but he is very much on the record of saying that a public health approach would be most effective. so i looked at both candidates, i could not certainly be more supportive of not only the person that i work for, but the support that he has given, given me and given this office in reforming the policies that i talked to you about a minute ago. >> thank you. >> will thanks. >> how old you characterize the pharmaceutical companies' responses to the abuse of prescription narcotics? i know you touched on prescriptions, but we do have a question, wondering if you could expand. >> and there has been some progress by the pharmaceutical industry on this. first of all, as you know from some of the news releases yesterday from the food and drug administration, the abuse/deterrent formulas of these very powerful prescription drug oxycontin is not to going to become a generic that can be easily abused. in other words, in
